The mission of Mothers’ Union is to demonstrate Christian faith in action by the transformation of communities worldwide through the nurture of the family in its many forms. This is achieved through our members who sign up to our aims and objectives and work with the church at a local level to carry out this mission.

As a church leader or active member in your church you can get involved and support the work of Mothers’ Union through fundraising, campaigning or setting up your own group if you do not already have one. We support clergy and church leaders by providing useful prayer and worship resources at Lent, Mothering Sunday, Advent and across the year. Please contact us if you have any specific needs.

For many people across the world Mothers’ Union has become an integral part of church life.

Mothers’ Union is one of the most important lay ministries within the Christian community. Through its fellowship and active mission Mothers’ Union offers what no other group can: local, effective, liberating building of capacity and mutual support among women. Membership gives an important dimension to Jane’s and my Christian life."The Most Revd Dr Rowan Williams
